A drawstring waist will work throughout the pregnancy, and the denim topper adds a pulled-together look.

Fashion expert Lisa Cole tells how to create a wardrobe that will work through the weight and shape changes of maternity and motherhood.

    You don't have to use a maternity top while pregnant; this top is just a size larger than normal and shows off the bulging baby belly.
    For work, pair a large cotton shirt with a monochromatic shirt and pants underneath.
    The bohemian look works for eveningwear during maternity and afterward.

  • Check out jeans with Lycra that accommodate weight fluctuation. Just buy them a little larger than your usual size. This will take you through the first stages of pregnancy and work after delivery as you work your weight back down.

  • Big shirts come in bright, carefree cotton that don’t make you look as if you raided your husband’s closet.

  • Try topping loungewear that has a drawstring waist with an oversized denim shirt. The forgiving fit will work both before and after the pregnancy.

  • Look for blends that add stretch, prevent wrinkles and clean up easily.

  • Try a flyaway pant for post maternity to hide extra weight. The panels over the pants give a skirt effect, which is dressier than a plain pair of pants.

  • Shoes are important during pregnancy because you don’t want to hurt your back. Don’t wear any heels over 2 -1/2 inches.
